This was excellent for my two children with chewing and swallowing problems. Very smooth and easy to swallow without getting stuck in the throat. SO perhaps this would be one of those you might want to try on very young children just learning to eat whole foods, elderly or disabled people who might have chewing and swallowing problems, sore throats, oral surgery, etc. Also, it occured to me that I could adjust ingredients to make this like a "Loaded" baked potato by using cheddar instead of swiss/parmesan and adding bacon bits, chives, finely chopped broccoli etc. Another thought I had and will try: whipping the cottage cheese in the blender or food processor before adding to the potato. This might give the pie a fluffier texture, more like a twice baked....? It was easy to make and plentiful. Good on calories and protein for those who are concerned about trying to increase those elements in their diets. It was even better the second day reheated in the microwave. Next time I make it I will make it ahead of time, refridgerate it and then reheat it.
